NOW is the time to artistically interpret this magnificent world wonder. NPAF is now offering Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park residencies, and close to some of the best beaches on the island. For an approximately one-month term in Summer of 2022. *We recommend you apply for this residency as soon as possible. The call for artists for this residency can be canceled at any time without notice* This residency opportunity is open to Single Artists, Families, Artist Couples, artist collectives, or arts troupes. Residency artists will stay at a spacious house just outside the park boundaries. Close to the beaches, 28 miles to Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park Visitors Center. We are excited to continue our artist-in-residence program at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. The Park boundaries include two legendary and sacred volcanoes, Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, as unique flora and fauna, as well rainforests and mysterious and ever-changing active lava flows. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is also an International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Designated Site. This is a unique dramatic environment for all artistic media to flourish and to inspire new breakthroughs in process and result. Possible Art donation through NPAF to NPS Collection at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park.
